Ladies and gentlemen of the Flatalist persuasion,

Please ensure you make a careful inspection of all stamps, franks, stickers, etc. that are to be found on the packaging in which your LBEs are sent through the Roundworld postal system. Currently in the process of re-arranging my stamp collection, I was delighted to find an A5 envelope from the Emporium containing 4 LBEs that I thought were lost forever a couple of months ago, having been put in that black hole of memory, otherwise known as a 'safe place' for later.

Anyway, I was even more delighted to find this prodigal envelope of LBE's when I realised that I had a very cleverly constructed Igor stamp in the corner :D :D :D

Damn clever, these Cunning Artificers :thumbl:

So, the moral of the story is have a damn good look at what comes on your envelopes from the Emporium, as well as what comes in them :wink:

I got another triangle, a complete set of Hogswatch commons and sports and miscellaneous other sports.
I got a ticket for the Sports cover :D didn't get the ticket for the sheets :(
I got lots of the Great A'Tuin package stamps but not sports even when there were two in the same LBE. Rather odd.

Funny you should say that, as I've had 3 different LBEs with a pair of Wyrmberg commons in them . . . can't help feeling that some lucky bugger got the mirror LBEs with a pair of Wyrmberg sports in them :evil: :mrgreen:

It all pales in comparison to the triangle sport, doesn't it. :wink: You lucky man. :thumbl:

Placing my LBE order on April Fools day, I included a note that went something along the lines of (I forget the exact wording, so will paraphrase):

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen of the Emporium,

The Felines of the household are most put out by the lack of string used in packaging these days and want to register a complaint about all this new-fangled sticky tape and self-adhesive flaps used in packaging instead of good old fashioned string. As said Felines use flaps as their main means of ingress and egress into the house, they view self-adhesive flaps as an abomination unto Nuggan.

As they register their displeasure through means which are an offence to one's nasal passages, please stop this madness!

Yours, somewhat yellowed and piquant smelling,
Grace Speaker


I was delighted to open my package from the Emporium to find :D

The Felines of the house were also delighted and attacked the string instantly :meow: :D

I hope you are enjoying opening your LBEs. I think you may have a few of my sports.
29 LBEs and all I got was a Klatch 20 wol sport plus, thankfully, one Glorious 25th sport.
